Can India Win World Cup 2007 ?

NEW DELHI: India's current cricket team is far better than the one that won the World Cup in 1983, said former skipper Kapil Dev in a newspaper interview published Monday.

"The players are much more experienced," The Times Of India quoted Dev as saying.

But India's chances of lifting the title depend on the team's performance in preliminary matches, he said.

No one expected India to beat the West Indies in the World Cup final in 1983 in England, said Dev, who captained the winning squad.

"We put in our best, reached the final and were victorious," he said.

Members of the 2007 team believe they can win, Dev said. "They are confident. They just have to apply themselves."
